  2. Liteons do the Dual Layer thingy. www.liteonit.com
    Not sure about the widescreen switching though. I'll check mine out
    tonight and let you know (My TV is always on widescreen so I never
    noticed)

    I know about the widescreen problem only from discussions about
    Sony RDR-HXD710 pvr which does not , apparently, store
    correctly 16:9 flag and which is important for automatic TV switching

  5. Checked it out, no it doesn't record with the widescreen 'trigger'.
    Once dumped to an RW disk you could use IFO edit to insert the
    widescreen flag youself, and re-burn.
    It is a bit shite that it doesn't do it though.

    Cheers

    It is shame, it is even more shame that such and expensive unit as
    Sony RDR-HXD710 does not do it either. That is why I wonder
    if there are any current recorders which do it correctly.

    My present RDR-GXD500 doesn't, but my old Philips DVDR-880 recorded it OK
    (RGB from a set top box, or analogue channel 4)

    As Philips invented DVD +R DL I would hope that some of their recorders
    would be able to do it correctly.
